“The private’s eyes are red from a thousand yard stare into the fog, or is it the smoke from parachute flares? He can hear metal wheels grinding inside tank tracks. Are they Tigers or Panzers, as if it really makes any difference? All the American soldier has is an M1 fitted with a grenade launcher. That and hunkered down inside a foxhole hoping the Germans’ bypass his position. In just three days it Christmas! The Belgian Ardennes is mostly fir trees but he would trade it all for a bottle of Cognac back in Luxembourg. Anyway, that’s the “wish list.” It was so cold. So very cold….”
My Uncle Gordon was only 19 years old, smack dab in the middle of “The Battle of the Bulge.” He survived that and later the Invasion of Germany. Asked about it 50 years later he would only say, “It was so cold. So very cold….

John: I know you’ll tune in next week at the big D.C. rally to nip the Iran deal in the bud. Even the MSM can’t resist covering it. It’s too big to ignore (like they have with Planned Parenthood). Ratings pay the grocery bill. You know what they say? Even Progs need to eat! LOL

SAR: I’m old enough to recall JFK bantering with the press. I remember a press conference where one of the original women Lib reporters (that Helen person), asked the President, “What are you personally doing for Women’s Rights?” JFK smiled and replied, “Well, probably not enough.” With that answer, he brought down the house!

The-Monk: The guy’s attorney advised him against trying to sell them for a purported asking price of $500,000 (of which I’m sure he could have garnered). Albeit you’re right about the “Fear Factor.” In the long view I anticipate an indictment and conviction of Hillary followed by an Obama Pardon.
The “Pardon” is payback to Bill for saving Obama’s 2012 run for re-election. That and whatever else the Clinton’s know about the last night in Benghazi, EXACTLY what happened inside the White House. It sure wasn’t any low level college girl at the State Department who issued the “Stand Down” rescue order.

run: Could be. Did you know the family of the guy that got out of his race car and stepped in front of Tony Stewart is doing just that? The criminal court refused to indict Stewart and ruled it was an accident purely at the rookies fault. Okay.That’s why I often say, “Follow the money!”

Behind: Maybe but twice in the same sentence is a little over the top, you think?
 September 3, 2015 at 6:05pm
Red: I’m predicting right now, you can top the pardon list with “HILLARY.”

Scroop: I’m all for sending every illegal over to some Libs house, since they think the invaders should be here.

Maji: I know what you mean. As hard as it is to believe, once in a while some MENSA reject will still go to the airport and say he has a bomb. LOL

Scroop: Sounds like you’ve been there as well as this guy.

Scroop: In that vein the Mexicans and Blacks hate the White guy but who do they think the other half of the DNA chain is that made that little squeeze box cheerleader? I mean, “Go Cow Girls!” The Cowboys may never win another Super Bowl but they sure have won the Cheerleader Bowl. LOL
Sarge: You speak much truth, Kemosabe, and with that truth the man must carry with him for his life, a great burden of responsibility and obligation, which in Cowboy Fan terms means, "GFY, you stinking Steelers Fan!" :)

minute: An arrest of “Calypso” Louie would be an exercise in futility because he has the Great Spaceship for his get-a-way.
I look at those essential provisions as the provisions that never go to waste. If things simmer down and cooler heads prevail (as I hope they would) then it just means more time on the practice range! :)
You can see all the knock out game you can stand at "White Girl Bleed a Lot". They still video & proudly post the attacks.

Psych: I don’t know about that but if she admits to it, I’ll have to think of her in a new way. LOL

Only aspect I know for certain. If the guy who made the tweet is Black, this will NEVER be charged as a Hate Crime. Someone out there tell me why I’m wrong on that? Tell me that justice is fair and equal? Then let me sell you some really great Florida swampland! LOL
but, but... blacks can't be racist!
I pass through La Plata al the time on highway 301. That town seems like it has 10 black people in all.
If he really does intend to do what he says, then he would most certainly have a tall task ahead of him.

DZ: I never before heard of that atoll. Good spot. I’ll let you in a little secret. I mention Farquhar from time to time because I know there are people on here who think I’m making him up. Eventually they look up the name and then get really angry over it. You see, Liberals think they’re so much better educated than everyone else but as you can clearly see just on this Forum what a fallacy that truly is! Some of then can’t even spell CAT unless you spot them the “C” and the “T”. LOL

FLOWN: It is an expensive knife, a fancy chef model and I’m sure you’re right that “mom” is missing some favorite cutlery.

Big: That’s good. Do you also have a balcony to fire it from?
